I had driven by Cafe Emilia in Bridgewater for several years and the architecture always caught my eye, so I finally decided to give it a try. What a major disappointment!! This does not, in any way, resemble authentic Italian food. The one positive note during the meal was the bread: it was fresh, warm and chewy....the real deal, in other words. Everything went downhill from there. A piece of salmon was coated in thick, dark paste of balsamic reduction. While the fish was cooked perfectly, it was completely overwhelmed by the sauce. Similarly, a pasta dish was served in a sea of gloopy green sauce. It was actually disturbing to look at. One member of our party had a chicken dish which was notable for its lack of any taste whatsoever (which, given the other dishes, was actually a good thing).
The service was strange, and even a little bit intimidating. The restaurant lacked the warmth that one would expect from a real Italian restaurant.
The outside of the building is nice, though, so I'll continue to stay on that side of the restaurant's door.
